We currently offer ONE form of waiting list – the priority waiting list. Our priority waiting list involves placing a $100 deposit to hold your place in line. This deposit will be a part of your holding deposit ($200), meaning you will only owe an additional $100 to place your chosen puppy on hold. Our priority waiting list is contacted in order of deposits received. We begin contacting our priority waiting list when the puppies are roughly 2-3 weeks of age; this is to ensure all puppies are 100% healthy, and so we can accurately determine coat length and color prior to placing them. Each client has 24 hours to respond, or we will move onto the next in line in order to keep things moving smoothly.
These deposits are non-refundable, however they do not expire. If you are looking for 2 or more puppies, you will need to place a deposit for each puppy; otherwise you will only be able to choose one puppy when we get to your placement on the list. These deposits cannot be combined at any point in time.
We will not personally contact anyone with available puppies, unless they are on the paid waiting list. Back when we used to offer a traditional waiting list, we would spend weeks contacting 50+ people who did not even respond. The deposit is to show your seriousness in adopting one of our puppies.
We get asked a lot, "Where am I on the waiting list?" ... Thats a loaded question. Our waiting list is so diverse that your number on the list means nothing. For examples, if numbers 1, 2, and 3 are looking for long hair puppies specifically, and number 4 is looking for a smooth coat, then when a smooth coat is produced, number 4 basically becomes number 1. It works like this for all colors, patterns, coats, genders, etc. If you're very specific on your puppy (long hair, blue & tan dapple, female) then your wait will most likely be longer than someone looking for a puppy with no preferences or minimal preferences. Hopefully that makes sense!
If interested in the paid waiting list, feel free to contact us using the contact form on our page or message us on our facebook page www.facebook.com/redbarnfarms2017 (faster response).
After you have placed your deposit to be placed on the waiting list, please download & fill out the Priority Waiting List information sheet - this is VERY important as you will not be added until this form is filled out and returned.
